Beer Here



On April 7th, 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed the Beer and Wine Revenue Act that allowed for the production and distribution of beer and wine again after Prohibition was repealed.

So, don't forget to raise your glasses in celebration of one of the best things FDR ever did for America.

Cheers!

If I had known before I got home I would have stopped and got some beer and we would have raised a bottle (I'm not refined enough for glasses)

I'd legalize booze again too if I were marriend to that hideous woman.

Cheers indeed!

Prohibition was a strange little concept, yet the US gave it's best shot before seeing the glass full.

Happy Easter too - you're a day late of course. :-)
